A: A very dark but slightly transparent brown ruby tinged black. The head is a laced brown and lingers.

S: Two aromas jump out immediately, chocolate and cherries. Very interesting and unique.

T: Cherries on the front of the flavors. Toffee, caramel, vanilla, oak, and chocolate are next. It finished from the heat from the bourbon/ABV.

M: Very heavy body with some (maybe too little) carbonation.

O: Good not great. This beer IMO, is over-hyped.

12oz bottle into snifter. Thanks codewarrior! 2011 bottle.

A: Pours like a glass of red wine: deep maroon in color with no carbonation. No bubbles at all. Oh well.
S: Rich and sweet notes of black cherry juice, sherry, bourbon, damp wood, baking chocolate, maybe toffee and hints of leather.
T: Slick and greasy well integrated flavors of caramel syrup, bourbon barrel, sweet cherry, damp musty earth, chocolate and leather with hints of toffee, butterscotch, tobacco and leafy hops in the finish. Aftertaste is sweet with a hint of oak tannin and mild barrel spice.
M: Greasy thick and viscous mouth and body, heavy, buttery and greasy. Flat.
O: Really really good flavor. Flat in this case is ok, but a few bubbles would have been nice.
